It's hard to have much sympathy when you know that this was written by the marketing department of a company with a $30bn market cap.

This looks to me like a blatant attempt to latch on to a perceived popular sentiment that Spotify thinks they can use to to have the government give them a big advantage that they didn't have before.

Call me cynical but it's hard to see this as anything but self serving.

Sure, but if another company with a $1T mkt cap is abusing it's market position to the detriment of a $30B company, wouldn't you want to hear about it?

After all, if they treat Spotify this way, how do you think they'll treat your app in the future if it happens to compete with them in someway?

sure but it’s 30bn vs apples almost trillion in market cap
